Focusing on the Roe v. Wade case, this is an account of the legal and political struggles that created the right to privacy and won constitutional protection for a woman's right to choose abortion.;Roe versus Wade, the landmark 1973 US Supreme Court ruling that established that right, grew out of not only efforts to legalise abortion but also out of earlier battles against statutes that criminalised birth control. In 1965, when the Supreme Court voided such a prohibition as an outrageous intrusion upon marital privacy, it opened up a previously unimagined constitutional door: the opportunity to argue that a woman's access to a safe, legal abortion was also a fundamental constitutional right.;This study details both the unheralded contributions of the young lawyers who filed America's first abortion rights cases and also the inside-the-Supreme Court deliberations that produced Roe v. Wade.;This expanded version also looks at the post-Roe evolution of abortion rights battles and the wider struggle for sexual privacy.
